This jolly bar keep is an old liquor decanter. The portly man has a towel over one arm and his other arm is raised with a pitcher in his hand. His head comes off for filling the decanter and he pours from the jug in his right hand. All paint is under glazed. On the bottom it is stamped MADE IN JAPAN. The waiter comes with five small shot glasses in the shape of miniature barrels with handles. I believe this set is probably from the 1930’s - 1950’s.
The decanter measures about 7 1/8” to the top of the bald head and it measures about 5 5/8” across from pitcher to the opposite shoulder. The little cups measure just under 2” high by 1 ½” in diameter at the top, excluding the handle. The whole set is in very nice condition with minimal wear and no damage.
